You can help Wethersfield Historical Society reach our funding goal for the newest exhibition Castle on the Cove: Connecticut State Prison and Wethersfield by donating. To date, we are only about $5,000 away from our budget goal and an anonymous donor has pledged to match donation we receive toward our budget goal! Every dollar you donate will be doubled and as always, your donation is 100% tax-deductible. Donate today online or send a check made out to WHS to 150 Main Street, Wethersfield, CT 06109 clearly marked in the memo “Donate to Prison Exhibit.” Thank you. We would like to thank the William and Alice Mortensen Foundation, the Robert Allan Keeney Memorial Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and the Farmington Bank Community Foundation for their generous funding.
